Qur'an 2:251 is as follows:

So they defeated them by permission of Allah , and David killed Goliath, and Allah gave him the kingship and prophethood and taught him from that which He willed. And if it were not for Allah checking [some] people by means of others, the earth would have been corrupted, but Allah is full of bounty to the worlds.

What exactly did Allah taught to David in this verse?

1 Answer 1


It's explained in other verses of Quran:

  • chanting the psalms (Azzaboor), thus he is example for the perfect reciting that mountains and birds where affected by his recitation.
  • Adaptation of iron and making shields
  • Judging
  • The most important one is he learned about Allah(knowing Allah)

(And Allah knows best).

  • Nice and short!
